The American Psychological Foundation is accepting applications for its Division 39 Grant.
According to the foundation, the future of psychoanalysis depends on countering the field’s insularity and increasing public awareness of the benefits of psychoanalytic treatments and the applications of psychoanalytic thought to organizational and social problems.
The Division 39 grant is designed to help build the capacity of the psychoanalytic profession in this area. To that end, a single grant of $6,000 will be awarded in support of work that articulates the value of psychoanalytic principles and/or treatments for the general public and advances the field of psychoanalysis.
The program encourages any effort that demonstrates the value of psychoanalytic principals and is especially interested in work that targets populations in need of support, including early-career professionals, students from diverse backgrounds, and therapists working with underserved populations.
Eligible applicants must have a demonstrated knowledge of psychoanalytic principles and may be a practicing psychoanalytic therapist (though this is not a requirement).
See the American Psychological Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
